    Linda is a 24-song collection covering some of Buddy Clark's best Columbia sides, not just all of the later hits (though "Linda," "Peg O' My Heart," "I'll Dance at Your Wedding," "How Are Things in Glocca Mora," and others are here), but all of this 1999 collection is representative, mostly of songs from 1947 and nearly all of it post-WWII. There's nothing earth-shattering here, but the man's expressive singing and rich intonation are unique. The sound is an old one, a lot of it rooted in a brand of postwar pop-novelty type song that Frank Sinatra helped bury when he moved to Capitol, and which rock & roll obliterated altogether, but this is was what a lot of people were listening to in the years after WWII, and Clark did it better than almost anyone else. In addition to his biggest hits, listeners can hear Clark's versions of "Chiquita Banana (The Banana Song)," "South America, Take It Away!" (both backed by Xavier Cugat), "You're Too Dangerous Cherie," "I'll See You in My Dreams," and "Just One More Chance" -- all representative of a forgotten brand of pop music. ~ Bruce Eder
